The Annual Global Forum Conference of the agri benchmark Beef and Sheep Network will be held in Galway on Monday, 18th June 2018. This is the 16th annual conference and it is the first time it will take place in Ireland. The Global Forum conference is the main event and midway in a week-long series of events - beginning 14th June with beef workshops and farm visits and concluding 20th June with sheep events. The Thunen Institute, Germany is coordinating these series of events in conjunction with Teagasc. The network of participants comprises over 30 countries internationally, with representatives from as far afield as Australia to Argentina, Brazil, China to the U.S. attending as well as representatives from most of the European countries. It is a most opportune time for this event to take place in Ireland - given the raising positive perception of grass-fed animals and associated meat quality and promotion programmes. Dr Claus Deblitz, Deputy Director, Thünen Institute of Farm Economics, Braunschweig, Germany is coordinating agri benchmark Beef and Sheep. Anne Kinsella, Teagasc economist, is the Irish representative in the network and is the person responsible for organising the series of events in Ireland.
